For those who missed it, the internet star recently uploaded a video called “‘Accountability’ to all Content Creators,” and shared past “offensive” clips from old videos to show all content creators how they “can learn something.” Seth also apologized for his involvement in the videos and said he wanted “to create a dialogue and a new form of communication between cultures.”
“I first off just really want to apologize from the bottom of my heart for taking a part in this type of content and not taking a stand for my people, and also just apologize to my friends that are involved in these videos to let them know that I’m sorry for not speaking up and saying ‘this stuff is wrong,’ and I’m sorry things are coming out and coming to light in this sort of fashion, and this video is not meant to damage or harm anyone’s reputation,” the 26-year-old explained. “If we can’t be accountable for the stuff we create, if we can’t be accountable for our actions, then we will never make any progress.”
Although he never called anyone out by name, many of the clips were from past Vlog Squad videos. Many fans took to the comment’s section of the video and accused him for seemingly blaming others for things he did in the past.
“Yeah but you were okay with it at the moment right? When you were riding the wave? Now its David’s fault. YOU are responsible for your own actions. Speak tf up. Now that there’s a movement you have an issue?” one person commented. Another added, “I mean I get what you’re saying Seth but if you were really trying to help them you could have done this personally. They’ve all come out and actively supported the movement and donated. These are all bits you’ve supported too at the time.”
Seth has not publicly responded to the backlash.
